The Shreveport Marshal's Office said Charlie Caldwell Jr.'s body was found by a kayaker Saturday morning. The Coast Guard and other law enforcement agencies searched for Caldwell after he fell off a boat "a few hundred yards off of Marler Bayou and didn't resurface" Thursday evening, according to coast guardsmen.
